For as long as he can remember, Mitch Caster has been drawing and painting — capturing the essence of the good that is around him. While he paints a wide variety of subjects, one of his specialties over the years has been dance. He has worked with the Colorado Ballet since 1994, and was recently honored to have his paintings featured at Lincoln Center in New York City, in celebration of the New York City Ballet’s 50th Anniversary. He also paints Flamenco, Native American, Latino, and other dance forms. Mitch also paints the human form in all walks of life, whether it’s a mother and child on a street in Spain, or a lotus gardener in China. He also paints still life, landscapes, cityscapes, and old buildings — from the crumbling structures of Venice, to the grand castles of Britain, to the adobe structures of the American southwest. To Mitch, the adobe structures “have a life of their own. It’s like painting skin.” Mitch’s fascination with people and historic subjects stems.
